Subject: Hypodermic Needles & Hairballs
Atmospheric swamps are the setting for this tale of scientific madness. A bit slow moving at times, but there are definite compensations. George Zucco goes nicely over the top as a whacko scientist bent on revenge. However, the main attraction is Glenn Strange as a simpleton gardener turned hairy werebeast. As usual he's a hoot and a half. The versatile Sarah Padden has a minor role as a pipe smoking backwoods granny. Typical of PRC, the sets and other production values are first class by B-feature standards. The print is in okay shape. If mad science is your thing, check this one out.
